Allotment of Stock Options Plan C1 For Executive Officers

 

Mitsubishi Corporation (the "Company") has announced that at a meeting held today the Company's Board of Directors established the terms regarding the distribution of stock options to Executive Officers of the Company, which were resolved by the Board of Directors to distribute to Executive Officers but put on hold due to overseas assignment, pursuant to Article 236-1, Article 238-1 and -2 and Article 240-1 of the Companies Act of Japan, as well as a resolution concerning the solicitation of subscribers to said stock options. The stock options are being distributed to provide further incentive and motivation to improve the Company's performance and further align Executive Officers interests with those of shareholders.

 

1.  Name of the Stock Options

Mitsubishi Corporation, 2021 Stock Options Plan C1 for a Stock-linked Compensation Plan with Market Conditions.

2.  Total Number of Stock Options    543

The above total is the planned number of stock options to be allotted. Where there is a decrease in the total number of stock options to be allotted, such as when there are no subscriptions for some of the rights, the total number of stock options to be issued shall be the total number of stock options allotted.

Eligible persons and number, as well as planned number of stock options to be allotted are as follows.

  Excecutive Officer and Former Executive Officer who do not serve concurrently as Directors (2) : 543

3.   Class and Number of Shares to Be Issued for the Purpose of Issuing Stock Options

The class of share to be issued upon the exercise of stock options shall be the Company's common stock, and the number of shares to be issued per stock option (hereinafter the "Number of Shares Granted") shall be 100.

However, if the Company conducts a stock split (including a free distribution of the Company's common stock; the same definition applies to stock splits described below) or consolidation of its common stock after the date of allotment of the stock options (hereinafter the "Allotment Date"), the Number of Shares Granted shall be adjusted in accordance with the following formula. Fractional shares arising out of the adjustment shall be discarded.

Adjusted Number of Shares Granted

= Original Number of Shares Granted x stock split or stock consolidation ratio

In the case of a stock split, the Adjusted Number of Shares Granted shall apply from the day after the record date of the said stock split (or effective date when no record date is specified). Whereas, in the case of a stock consolidation, the Adjusted Number of Shares Granted shall apply from the day the stock consolidation becomes effective. Provided, however, that in cases where the Company conducts a stock split conditional on approval at a General Meeting of Shareholders of the Company of a proposal to reduce retained earnings and increase common stock and paid-in capital, the record date for the stock split shall be the day prior to the day on which said shareholders' meeting closes. In this case, the Adjusted Number of Shares Granted shall retroactively apply from the day after the day the applicable shareholders' meeting closes and the day following the applicable record date.

In addition to the above items, when for unavoidable reasons it is necessary to adjust the Number of Shares Granted after the Allotment Date, the Company reserves the right to adjust the Number of Shares Granted within reasonable limits.

Moreover, when the Number of Shares Granted is adjusted, the Company shall notify or report, using the method stipulated in the Articles of Incorporation, the pertinent details to persons holding stock options listed in the original register of stock options (hereinafter the "Stock Options Holder") no later than the day prior to the day the Adjusted Number of Shares Granted becomes effective. Provided, however, that in cases where the Company cannot issue such a report or notice by the day before the said application date, it will do so immediately on the application date or soon thereafter.

4.  Total Amount Payable Upon Exercise of Stock Options

The total amount payable upon exercise of one stock option shall be determined by multiplying the price payable per share that can be granted due to the exercise of stock options, which shall be 1 yen, by the Number of Shares Granted.

5.  Stock Option Term

On or after July 7, 2023 through July 6, 2050

6.  Increases in Common Stock and Additional Paid-in Capital for Shares Issued Due to the Exercise of Stock Options

(2) If shares are issued due to the exercise of stock options, additional paid-in capital shall increase by the amount remaining after deducting the increase in common stock prescribed in (1) above from the limit for increase in common stock in (1) above.
